Christophe DERAIL is the Director of the Polymer Physics and Chemistry Team in the IPREM Institut, a jointly run Université de Pau et des Pays de l'Adour (UPPA), and CNRS laboratory (UMR 5254). He is the President, since 2009, of the French Adhesion Society. He received his Ph.D. degree, in polymer physics, from UPPA in 1995, and after working as an Assistant Professor in the Ecole Supérieure d’Agriculture d’Angers, France, he returned to UPPA in 2000. His main research activity concerns rheology–adhesion–structure relationships in the area of soft adhesives and, more recently, composites based on nanofillers. He has supervised around 20 Ph.D. and postdocs in the polymer-based sciences since 2000.
